1 (Notes) [Translation] The Form o f Audit Reports Japan Corporate Auditors Association Enacted on April 6, 1994 Revised on October 31, 1994 Revised on June 13, 2002 Revised on September 28, 2004 Final revision on September 28, 2006 This translation is prepared only for reference purposes and in the case of any matters falling within the ambit of The Form of Audit Reports (the Form), reference should be made to the original Japanese text of the Form. This translation merely covers the form of the partial cases given below out of the cases given in the table of contents. I Audit report to be provided to shareholders 1. In the case of a company with board of directors + kansayaku-kai + accounting auditor II Audit report to be prepared by each kansayaku 1. In the case of a company with board of directors + kansayaku-kai + accounting auditor (1) In the case of a full-time kansayaku (2) In the case of a part-time kansayaku 1. This form, hereinafter referred to as the Form, outlines a model and terms of reference for kansayaku or the kansayaku-kai when preparing an audit report as stipulated in the Companies Act of Japan (Kaishahou). The term audit report (kansahoukoku) used in the laws and regulations is expressed as the audit report (kansahoukokusho) in the Form, in accordance with customary practice 1. Of course, it is possible to also describe it as the audit report (kansahoukoku). Essentially, the audit report is prepared based on the actual situation of the audit of each company. Kansayaku or the kansayaku-kai are expected to prepare an audit report which accurately reflects the actual conditions discovered by their audit pursuant to the Companies Act of Japan, the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan and the Company Accounting Regulations, etc. For assistance in this regard, please refer to the many examples of statements in the Notes regarding the method of conducting audits which actively incorporates the Code of Kansayaku Auditing Standards stipulated by the Japan Corporate Auditors Association, and reflecting the Code in the audit reports. 2. With respect to the audit reports prepared by kansayaku or the kansayakukai, under the laws or regulations, there are separate provisions for the preparation of audit reports concerning the business report and any annexed specification hereinafter referred to as the business report, etc. and for the preparation of audit reports concerning accounting-related documents. However, the auditing for the 1 [In this translation, both of kansahoukoku and kansahoukokusho are translated into audit report. ]

2 - 2 - business report, etc. and the auditing for accounting-related documents by kansayaku or the kansayaku-kai are closely related, and have much in common. Therefore, in the Form, the form of preparation that was adopted as a basic method of preparation which combines the audit report concerning the business report, etc., the audit report concerning accounting documents for each business year and the annexed specification hereinafter referred to as accounting documents, etc. and the audit report concerning consolidated accounting documents, into one audit report. Under the laws and regulations, while four weeks are allocated as the audit period for the kansayaku(-kai) for the business report, etc., there are four weeks allocated as the audit period for an accounting auditor, and one week allocated as the audit period for the kansayaku-kai thereafter for accounting-related documents. Therefore, in the event of the preparation of the three audit reports noted above together in one document, as provided for in the Form, please note that there are occasions where the period for the audit for the business report, etc. must be extended by agreement with the specified directors. With respect to the method of preparation of the kansayaku(-kai) audit report, other than as noted above, it is also possible to (i) prepare an audit report concerning the business report, etc. and an audit report concerning accounting documents, etc. together as one document, and to prepare an audit report concerning consolidated accounting documents separately, (ii) prepare the audit report concerning business report, etc. independently and to prepare the audit report concerning accounting documents, etc. and the audit report concerning consolidated accounting documents together as one document, or (iii) prepare all of these three audit reports separately. Therefore, in the Form, while adopting the form of preparation of combining all the audit reports together as a basic method of preparation, in order to respond to companies which (i) intend to select the method of preparation of the audit report concerning consolidated accounting documents separately and independently or (ii) are not required to prepare the consolidated accounting documents in the first place, etc., the method of addressing such cases is explained by the notes affixed to the Form and examples of statements in cases where audit reports concerning consolidated accounting documents were prepared separately and independently are found in the Reference Materials. 3. In the case of companies with kansayaku-kai, each kansayaku shall prepare his/her respective audit report, and the audit of the kansayaku-kai is formed by combining the contents of each kansayaku s audit report, to be provided to the shareholders. However, each kansayaku s audit report shall also be the subject of safekeeping and inspection. In light of the law requiring that each kansayaku and the kansayaku-kai respectively prepare the audit report, the Form adopts a style for each kansayaku to prepare their respective audit report and demonstrates the forms to be used by full-time kansayaku and part-time kansayaku. It is also understood that the preparation of the audit report in one document which combines the audit reports of the kansayaku-kai and each kansayaku may be possible. In cases where the audit reports are combined in one document, it is desirable that the scope, the method and the contents, etc. of each kansayaku s audit are clarified. In the case of companies without a kansayaku-kai, each kansayaku shall also prepare an audit report. With respect to the audit report to be provided to the shareholders, in place of the method of providing the shareholders with the audit reports of each kansayaku, it is possible to prepare one audit report combining the audit reports of each kansayaku and provide the shareholders with the one combined audit report. The Form demonstrates this form of combined audit report.

3 With respect to the method and the contents of the audit, in the audit report, the method of the audit actually conducted by kansayaku must be described clearly and briefly so that the reliability of the audits may be accurately determined. In the Form, the method and the contents of audits which are considered to be generally conducted are indicated. However, the method and the contents of the audit are expected to vary due to the differences, in each company s organizational structure and internal control systems, etc., and the assignment of the duties of kansayaku. In the Form, notes are added where various descriptions of the audit methods are expected, and explanations are added where needed. Please prepare the audit reports with reference to these notes. Needless to say, the audit report is prepared with the assumption that the kansayaku fulfill the duty of care. The Kansayaku must clarify the standards of the audit and keep records of the audit and the minutes of the kansayaku-kai, etc. to substantiate the performance of this duty. 5. In the event the kansayaku-kai prepares the audit report, the kansayaku-kai must deliberate the contents of the kansayaku-kai audit report once or more by holding meeting(s) or by a method in which opinions can be exchanged simultaneously by the transmission and reception of information. 6. The Form is targeted at companies with a board of directors. Please also prepare the audit report with reference to the Form in the case of companies organized without the board of directors. 7. In cases where extraordinary accounting documents are prepared by companies, kansayaku or the kansayaku-kai must prepare an audit report concerning such extraordinary accounting documents. Even though extraordinary accounting documents may be prepared by companies without a board of directors, a kansayaku-kai, or an accounting auditor, if the companies are companies with kansayaku (including in the event that the scope of the audit of kansayaku is limited to those documents concerning accounting), the Form only lists the form of the audit report to be provided to the shareholders by companies whose organizational structure is: a board of directors + kansayaku-kai + accounting auditor. Therefore, please prepare the audit report to be provided to the shareholders and the audit report by each kansayaku with reference to the Form in the case of companies with a different organizational structure to that noted above.

7 - 7 - (iii) (iv) duties (Note 20). (Note 21) We acknowledge that the board of directors resolutions with respect to the internal control systems are appropriate. (Note 22) We did not find any matter to be mentioned with respect to the directors performance of their duties concerning the internal control systems. (Note 23) We did not find any matter to be mentioned with respect to the basic policies, described in the business report, regarding those who rule on the company s determination of its financial and business policies. Undertakings, described in the business report, set forth in Article 127, item 2 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan are in line with the basic policies, do not impair the common interests of the company s shareholders, and are not directed to the purpose of maintaining the status of the company s officers.

8 - 8 - (Note 2) (Note 3) (Note 4) (Note 5) (Note 6) (Note 7) Under the Companies Act of Japan, an audit report shall be submitted to a specified director (Article 132, paragraph 1 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan, Article 160, paragraph 1 of the Company Accounting Regulation. Refer to Article 132, paragraph 4 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan, Article 158, paragraph 4 of the Company Accounting Regulation with respect to the definition of specified director ). Therefore, it may be considered to describe the position and name of the specified director at the address of the invoice. However, in this form, the audit report is addressed to a representative directorpresident, because (i) a representative director is responsible to shareholders to provide the audit report, (ii) the company, namely the representative director, is responsible to keep the audit report and (iii) other reasons (it may be considered to be put down with representative director and specified director according to circumstances). The address of the invoice should be examined in the context of the actuality of each company. The seal of the kansayaku-kai at invoice shall be pursuant to the internal rule of each company. This invoice assumes the case that the audit report was submitted in writing. In cases where the audit report is reported to a specified director by electromagnetic means or other cases, some modification is necessary. For example, the phrase as per enclosure shall be replaced by as attached hereto. With respect to the wording after deliberations, it may be considered to describe such proper expression as after deliberations, as unanimous opinion of all kansayaku. With respect to the 1. Method and Contents of Audit by Kansayaku and the Kansayaku-kai, although under the former act, the Commercial Law of Japan, it was required to describe the outline of the method of audit, under the Companies Act of Japan it should be kept in mind that the kansayaku-kai shall describe a more concrete method and contents of audit related to the audit activities that the kansayaku-kai actually did, instead of providing an outline (Article 129, paragraph 1, item1 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan, Article 156, paragraph 2, item1 of the Company Accounting Regulation). From this viewpoint, if described much more concretely, in cases where there is a special audit item in this fiscal year, it is desirable, for example, to describe the kansayaku-kai has established the audit policies and assignment of duties, etc., set [ ] as priority subject for audit, and received a report from each kansayaku when there is an audit item that the kansayaku-kai did audit with an emphasis as a priority subject (priority subject for audit).

9 - 9 - (Note 8) (Note 9) In cases where an audit plan including assignment of duties of each kansayaku has been drawn up, it may be considered to describe the audit plan instead of the assignment of duties by taking into consideration the audit s importance. In cases where the kansayaku-kai has not stipulated the code of kansayaku auditing standards, the wording in conformity with the kansayaku auditing standards shall be cut off. (Note 10) Refer to Note 7 concerning audit policies, and refer to Note 8 concerning assignment of duties. (Note 11) (Note 12) (Note 13) (Note 14) (Note 15) The wording the internal audit division should describe an appropriate name of divisions, etc. in accordance with the actuality of each company.

In cases where there exists a parent company, it may be considered to describe with the directors, the internal audit division, other employees, kansayaku of the parent company and others, endeavored to. This form mentions the matters in which kansayaku received a report based on systems for directors and employees to report to kansayaku and any other systems relating to reports to be provided to kansayaku resolved by the board of directors pursuant to Article 100, paragraph 3, item 3 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan. Depending on the embodiment of audit, with respect to the wording employees in the phrase received reports on the status of the performance of duties from the directors and other employees, it may be considered to specify the internal audit division, etc. In this form, we describe systems developed in accordance with the board of directors resolution set forth in Article 362, paragraph 4, item 6 of the Companies Act of Japan as internal control systems. It may be considered to describe the concrete title, page, etc. in the business report. In addition, if the kansayaku-kai indicates having stipulated the audit practice standards for internal control systems and having conducted its audit in accordance with the standards, it may be considered to describe monitored and inspected the status of the systems (internal control systems) based on the audit practice standards for internal control systems set by the kansayaku-kai or other wording. Incidentally, a Large Company shall determine by a board of directors resolution with respect to the internal control systems that the other companies can resolve voluntarily.

(Note 16) (Note 17) Refer to Article 105, paragraph 2 and 4 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan with respect to facilitating a mutual understanding and exchanging information with the directors and kansayaku, etc. of the subsidiaries. In cases where the kansayaku-kai exercised the right to investigate the status of the operations and the financial status of the subsidiaries (set forth in Article 381, paragraph 3 of the Companies Act of Japan), it may be considered to describe this as each subsidiary and demanded a report on the business for the subsidiary and investigated the status of the operations and the financial status of the subsidiary. Kansayaku and the kansayaku-kai shall describe the matters concerning systems to ensure that the performance of the duties of the accounting auditor are properly conducted (Article 156, paragraph 2, item 2; Article 155, item 4 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan, hereinafter referred to as systems that ensure the appropriateness of performance of accounting auditors duties ) in the audit report. Kansayaku and the kansayaku-kai shall confirm that the system has been developed in accordance with an appropriate standard after they received notice from accounting auditors of matters on systems that ensure the appropriateness of performance of their duties (Article 159 of the Company Accounting Regulation; the matters concerning systems to ensure that the performance of the duties of the accounting auditor are properly conducted ). In this form, with respect to matters to be noticed relevant to systems that ensure the appropriateness of performance of accounting auditors duties and measures to confirm that, it is mentioned Each kansayaku was notified by the Accounting Auditor that it established in accordance with, and requested explanations in accordance with necessity. Although as certain proper standard, this form mentions Quality Control Standards for Audits (Business Accounting Council on October 28,2005), the practical guidelines of The Japanese Institute of Certified Public Accountants (Quality Control Committee Report No.1 The Quality Control at Audit Firm and Audit Standards Committee Report No.32 Quality Control for Audit Activities ), etc. are also important. Incidentally, with respect to the results that kansayaku and the kansayaku-kai confirm the systems that ensure the appropriateness of performance of accounting auditors duties, in this form they are not described separately, but included in the description of the methods and results of audit performed by the accounting auditor are appropriate at (2) Results of Audit and Accounting Documents and Annexed Specifications or (3) Results of Audit of Consolidated Accounting Documents in 2.

11 Documents and Annexed Specifications or (3) Results of Audit of Consolidated Accounting Documents in 2. Results of Audit. (Note 18) (Note 19) (Note 20) (Note 21) (Note 22) In case the company does not prepare a schedule of individual notes separately, this portion shall be described in the accounting documents (balance sheet, profit and loss statement and shareholders equity variation statement) and the annexed specifications thereto for the business year under consideration. In the case of schedule of consolidated notes, the same shall apply (ref. Article 89, paragraph 3 of the Company Accounting Regulation). In case there are matters to be indicated concerning Results of the Audit, the kansayaku-kai shall describe that effect and the fact thereof clearly and briefly. In case the kansayaku-kai could not undertake necessary investigations for audit, the kansayaku-kai shall describe that effect and the reason thereof to an appropriate section. With respect to stating Results of the Audit, in case there is an occurrence or circumstance affecting the company s going-concern value, material accident or disaster, material litigation, or any other matter that may materially affect the soundness of the company, after confirming the record of the business report, etc. and examining whether the description of these in the audit report is necessary, if it is found to be necessary, these should be described in the audit report. With respect to the wording directors performance of their duties, it may be considered to describe directors execution of their duties in accordance with the wording in the law and regulations (ref. Article 130, paragraph 2, item 2; Article 129, paragraph 1, item 3 of Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan). The wording is unified performance of directors duties. In case the kansayaku-kai has found any misconduct or material fact constituting a violation of any law or regulation or the articles of incorporation of the company, the kansayaku-kai shall describe that fact concretely. In case the contents of the board of directors resolutions on the internal control systems are found to be inappropriate (Article 129, paragraph 1, item 5; Article 130, paragraph 2, item 2 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan), the kansayaku-kai shall describe that effect and the reason thereof concretely. In particular, the contents of board of directors resolutions regarding systems for ensuring the effectiveness of kansayaku s audit activities such as matters relating to employees who support the kansayaku s duties, systems for directors and employees to report to kansayaku, etc. (the matters listed in the items of Article 100, paragraph 3 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan), are important as a basis of kansayaku s effective audit, and in case any problems, etc. are found, such as lack of resolutions about allocation of employees who support the kansayaku s duties, etc., which kansayaku demanded, the kansayaku-kai shall describe that effect actively.

12 (Note 23) (Note 24) (Note 25) (Note 26) In cases where there are matters that should be noted particularly regarding the status of directors performance of their duties on establishment and operation of the internal control systems, the kansayaku-kai shall describe that effect concretely. Because the board of directors resolutions on the internal control systems are likely to remain a broad outline of the internal control systems, even if the board of directors resolutions on the internal control systems are found to be appropriate (ref. Article 129, paragraph 1, item 5 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan), in cases where particular problems etc. which are found to breach the duty of care are found with respect to the status of the internal control systems which the directors in charge of development do develop as a part of performance of his/her duties, the kansayaku-kai shall describe to that effect. This is a description of the kansayaku-kai s opinion with respect to the so-called takeover defense measures, etc. and board of directors decisions thereof (Article 130, paragraph 2, item 2 and Article 129, paragraph 1, item 6 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan; in cases where such measures and decisions are not included in a business report, the kansayaku-kai s opinion is not required to be described in the audit report). In consideration of the importance of that kansayaku s judgment regarding the appropriateness of takeover defenses measures, it is desirable to describe issues concretely that should be commented, if any. In addition, with respect to the wording basic policies, described in the business report, regarding those who rule on the company s determination of its financial and business policies, or undertakings, described in the business report, set forth in Article 127, item 2 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan, they may be considered to describe with reference to a concrete title or page etc. in the business report. The name of the audit firm or office of certified public accountant and his/her name are described. If the kansayaku-kai finds that the methods used in the accounting auditor s audit and the results thereof are inadequate, the kansayakukai shall describe that effect and the reason thereof specifically. (Note 27) Same as Note 25. (Note 28) Same as Note 26. (Note 29) (Note 30) In cases where the opinion of kansayaku is different from that of the kansayaku-kai, the kansayaku-kai shall describe the name of kansayaku and his/her different opinion and the reason thereof briefly. Under the laws and regulations, subsequent events required to be described in kansayaku or the kansayaku-kai audit report are limited to the matters regarding accounting-related documents (except events included in the audit report of accounting auditors. Article 155, item 3 of the Company Accounting Regulation). In cases where there is a

13 subsequent event required to be described, it should be described specifically. (Note 31) (Note 32) It should be kept in mind that the date of preparation on the audit report is required to be described by law (Article 130, paragraph 2, item 3 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Companies Act of Japan; Article 156, paragraph 2, item 3 of the Company Accounting Regulation). It is desirable that full-time kansayaku disclose his/her status as fulltime kansayaku. With respect to the way of describing the status of full-time kansayaku, it may be considered to describe kansayaku (full-time kansayaku):[ ]. (Note 33) It is desirable that outside kansayaku set forth in Article 2, item 16 and Article 335, paragraph 3 of the Companies Act of Japan disclose his/her status as outside kansayaku. With respect to the wording full-time kansayaku (outside kansayaku):[ ], it may be considered to describe full-time outside kansayaku [ ]. In addition, with respect to the way of describing the status of outside kansayaku, instead of disclosure at the signature space, it may be considered to add a footnote at the end of audit report and to describe (Note) kansayaku:[ ] and kansayaku:[ ] are outside kansayaku set forth in Article 2, item 16 and Article 335, paragraph 3 of the Companies Act of Japan. (Note 34) (Note 35) With respect to the wording outside kansayaku:[ ], it may be considered to describe kansayaku (outside kansayaku):[ ].
